Faith and Writing Workshop

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2017 Faith & Writing Workshop. We look forward to seeing you in 2018. Information will be posted here as soon as it becomes available. For more information, please call 314-505-7286 or email ce@csl.edu.


Concordia Seminary’s “Faith and Writing” workshop explores various forms of creative writing — starting a blog, creating a sermon or devotion, “traditional” forms of creative writing (story, nonfiction, drama, poetry) — and everything in between. Attention will be given to social media and new forms of expression, with ample time provided for creative exercises.

The workshop will focus on what it means to create and communicate as a person of faith. What makes for effective communication? How do we cultivate creativity in our lives? What role does faith play in the creative process? Participants are encouraged (but not required) to bring their own work, as well as favorite works by others.
